TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
One of the guys working with me is having a problem with Captivate. He's complained that he's getting no results from his Adobe group. I thought someone from this group might help him. He sent me the following statement:
Sequential IF statements are not evaluated in Captivate (after the condition is met). And Nested IF statements do not seem to work correctly (and are wrong for what I'm trying to do anyway). Does anyone know if there is a way to execute multiple Advanced Actions in Captivate 4?
And by way of whining, let me just say the Captivate script editor is a horrible straightjacket. A tiny modeless dialog box that forces line after line of empty and unbalanced statements. I'll be glad when they ditch it in the new version, but I hope it doesn't break my old scripts.
